I’ve been concerned about getting my roof replaced. It’s not leaking. But I’ve lived in this house 15 years and I’ve no idea how old the roof is. I know that getting it replaced will have to be done. So I had a contracter come and give me an estimate. To say I was shocked is an understatement. I had no idea that roofs had gotten so expensive. Of course, the last time I replaced on was probably at least 30 years or more ago and it is inevitable that the price would have gone up. I just didn’t expect it to have gone up that much.
This is just a normal home maintenance project so my home owner’s insurance isn’t involved. A number of houses in the subdivision are getting new roofs so I wonder if when the workmen get on the roof they will find some kind of storm damage that insurance would cover. At least I have good credit and have been approved for a loan to pay for the roof.
Best of all, the roof isn’t leaking. Given all the rain we’ve had — and continue to have — this year, that is a blessing and I’m grateful.
